Fat Girl on a Plane Reviews
Reading a well-written book makes me want to write a better-written review. Kelly deVos’ Fat Girl on a Plane makes me want to write the best review I’ve ever written.
This book wasn’t what I was expecting. Honestly, the number of books with plus-size protagonists I’ve read is pretty limited, and I assumed this would be another one of those books in which the protagonist learns to love herself the way she is with the help of the male version of a manic pixie dream girl love interest. DeVos took my ...more
There comes a time when you read a book and know…this was what the world needs. That’s just what I thought when reading Fat Girl On A Plane. The world NEEDS this book. Girls, young and old, need this book.
This book takes a sensitive matter of peer perception and adds humor and empowerment to body positivity. It’s something in this day and age, especially in the fashion industry, that girls need to see.
Cookie is a fantastic character. Intelligent, witty and strong. She’s a teen fashionista who wa ...more
I CAN'T WAIT! Kelly is brilliant and everyone needs to add this if they want to LIFE right.
I thought this was a great debut. I highly suggest reading the author's note. It explains why the book is written the way it is and how it started from a personal experience on a plane.
Fat Girl on a Plane is told by one narrator, Cookie Von. But it is told in alternating chapters starting two years apart.
Cookie is a high school senior. She is in love with her best friend, Tommy, and is over 300 pounds. Cookie's mom is a supermodel and her dad is a doctor. But neither are there for her an ...more

Warning, this review is 3500 words long. I did not like this book, and worse than that, I thought this was a very harmful book, and this will not be a positive review. If that bothers you, move on now. I am also putting a major trigger warning if you ...more
Thank you Netgalley for providing me a free DRC in exchange for an honest review
So this book has been getting A LOT of praise and I couldn't really understand why. Yes, the book had a cool premise and an interesting angle, but I wasn't sure how well this book would hold up to scrutiny, especially since a lot of the early praise I saw for it was similar to Dumplin's. But, after reading Fat Girl on a Plane I get the praise. And by god does it deserve it.
Body positivity books are a hit or miss for ...more
m sorry but this book was just not for me. There was constant switching back and forth of timelines that just made me super confused at times and had a hard time following. I also expected this book to be different and made me a bit uncomfortable about my weight and myself reading this book so just knew it wasn't for me but I really appreciate this opportunity.
I love love loved it! It was smart and funny and the dual timeline kept me turning the pages because I had to find out what happened to Cookie! I can already tell she's a character who will stick with me for a long time.
